We went there from strawberry banke (a 5 minute walk) to sit and relax at the end of the day. It was pleasant to sit, picnic, watch the river. We did not do anything in particular (there were some activities for younger children).

I like to frequently visit the park just to get away from life's busyness. It's nice to see the working shipyard across the river and the gardens are always a vey peaceful place to relax. Beautiful place.

Exceptionally groomed gardens alongside the beautiful Piscataqua river. Street parking is opportunistic, but garage parking is a short walk.

My wife and I always enjoy walking through the park. The gardens are breathtaking. We normally spend the afternoon walking through the park enjoying the sights and sounds. There are seasonal plays as well as music to enjoy. Fun for the whole family..

My guess would be for sunshine and overcast days. The musical instruments would get wet during a concert. There isn't a canopy over the stage.

Yes, you can bring any kind of food and drink EXCEPT alchohol - that is a city restriction on public drinking.
